- Architecture & development
This residence in California is a pure reflection of all the natural elements found in the area. Designer Mario Romano developed a new architectural language with CNC ('computer numeric controlled') technology.
The family home is located in the American coastal city of Venice Beach. Mario Romano did not look to far for the inspiration for the architecture. The facade and roof are made of wavy aluminium sheets and imitate the movement of the ocean. The sheets also provide a connection between the air and the ground. The side and rear facades were also covered with unique and custom-made sheets that were ingeniously placed on top of each other. There are about 300 in total and none of them have the same shape, because — according to the designer — nature does not repeat itself. The floors and walls inside are also characterised by unique textures. It is the special M.R. Walls by Mario Romano that have been placed here and which, given the general idea behind the design of the house, wonderfully fit into the whole. The pivoting front door made of wood displays wave motifs that once again match the theme of the residence. The connection with nature is also reflected in the many openings and large windows through which all rooms are connected to the outside environment. There is even a fully furnished patio that serves as an outdoor living space to enjoy the temperate temperatures of Southern California all year round.
